Kim Dotcom and the team at MEGA have launched a Firefox add-on that allows users to easily upload their files to the new file storage platform.
The browser extension has already been “preliminary reviewed” by Mozilla and has been labeled as “secure and invisible.”
Firefox users who have already registered with MEGA will be prompted to download and install the add-on right when they launch the Firefox browser.
According to MEGA, the dialog box that pops up promises “vastly improved download performance” and will allow users to “batch-download an unlimited number of files without any size restrictions.”
So far, more than one million users have uploaded more than 50 million files to the company’s new cloud storage services. MEGA is offering a whopping 50GB of storage for free users, far eclipsing the likes of Dropbox and Microsoft Skydrive.
MEGA already offers a web based browser file system and a download app for Google Android smartphones.
In announcing the new Firefox add-on, Kim Dotcom sent out the following tweet:
Firefox is now #MEGA. Install our extension and enjoy blazing transfer speeds. On your next visit you will get an option to install it

MEGA is already a far different platform compared to Kim Dotcom’s former MegaUpload service. Unlike the former, the new platform actively stops illegal file sharing and focuses on user and enterprise services that are fully encrypted directly from a users browser window.
Will you be taking advantage of the new MEGA Firefox add-on for your file storage needs?
